EASTENDERS fans are convinced Linda Carter will destroy Janine Butcher after discovering her true identity tonight.
The Queen Vic landlady – who is played by actress Kellie Bright in the BBC soap – made her return tonight for sister-in-law Tina Carter’s funeral.
And she had a shock when she spotted Janine there with her estranged husband Mick.
Viewers know Janine secretly visited Linda at her mum’s pub and posed as a wine seller to convince her to drink again and divorce Mick.
Midway through the service, it finally dawned on Linda who Janine really is – and she had many questions.
Whispering to Mick, she demanded to know what she was doing there and why she had convinced her to divorce him.
He shut her down and she was left furious.
And later, when he broke down giving his eulogy, Linda was devastated when Janine went up to comfort him and no-one seemed surprised.
She walked out, devastated, but daughter Nancy was quick to follow.
“Are you seriously making this about you?” she said furiously.
“Today’s about Tina. You could see he was struggling up there.
“You could have just got up and given him a hug but you couldn’t do it, could you? Not even on a day like today.”
But Linda hit back: “I gave my life to this family, despite all the pain they caused him, all the pain they caused me.
“But I’m still here, for him. And what do I get for it? That woman showing me up and nobody batted an eyelid.
“I might be a lot of things, Nancy, but I don’t deserve that.”
Linda left the chapel and immediately went outside to drink more vodka.
And viewers are predicting fireworks now she knows who Janine is.
